Winning this award as an independent label (CTBC Music Group) is major for us, to receive this type of acknowledgement from our piers and our own reggae community, means just as much to us as the Grammy win. We haven’t been nominated much less win an award in our own reggae community in so many years. It’s good to be back on that stage, and thank you to the IRAWMA. We want to thank the most high for his divine blessings, our family for their sacrifice the industry and our amazing Loyal Royal fans worldwide fans for supporting us over the years.
